Blaming the FISA Court.... The Media Double Standard

Fox News has a habit of beating a dead horse when it comes to certain stories.  So when I turned them on while I was taking a break for lunch only to find them still saying the same thing, over and over, about the plane crash I found myself flipping over to MSNBC where a panel was talking about Edward Snowden, the NSA whistle-blower that leaked the info that the government is spying on all of us.

In their discussions of Snowden and the NSA spying that that he revealed, not once did they mention the Obama administration.  Instead, their focus was on the possible overreach of the FISA Court which approved every request over the last year. 

MSNBC pointed out that the head judge on the FISA court was appointed by Chief Justice John Roberts who, of course, was appointed by President George W. Bush.  It was almost as if MSNBC was………. pointing the finger at Bush.  Nah, they wouldn’t do that, would they?

The People Who Were Worried About Privacy During The Bush Administration.... Where Are They Now??

Republicans, democrats and the mainstream media are all attacking Edward Snowden. The word "traitor" is even being thrown around. 
 
Am I the only person on earth that can remember the outcry toward the Bush administration over the USA Patriot Act?? We don't hear much about it any more but it's still being used. Obama owns it now.... Congress had to renew it before it sunsetted and Obama signed it. But you missed it when the media cried about it being renewed right? No you didn't, the media was uninterested. 
 
Imagine if Bush were still president when this news broke about the NSA collecting all of our phone call data. Conservatives would still be calling Snowden a traitor but the democrats and their mouthpieces in the media would be hailing him as a hero for exposing privacy intrusions. They would be beating a republican president to political death with it. 
 
It's deeply disturbing how far in the tank our supposed watchdogs in the media are for the New Democrat Party, AKA Communists.
